3 tips for a more relaxing home

We all want to feel comfortable in our own home. But sometimes stress and frustration can creep on in – especially after many of us have spent extra time at home over the last couple of years. Here are three simple ways to help you find more peace and relaxation at home.

1. Add a sense of nature Whether full fiddle leaf figs or smaller trailing pothos, the 70s houseplant trend is back in a big way – and for good reason. Many plants offer air-purifying properties that keep your spaces fresh, adding oxygen and bringing a reminder of the natural world outside the walls of your home.

If living plants aren’t your thing, try adding natural colours and textures to your home, such as soothing sage green or rattan rugs or baskets.

2. Get a handle on clutter Unused items hanging around your home, such as random papers or knickknacks to extra clothes or toys – they not only crowd your space, but they also clutter up your mind as well. Take some time to get rid of what you don’t want or need. You can sell or donate items in good condition and recycle or toss those that aren’t. Make sure items you do keep, like mail, shoes or books have a place to be stored so you’re less tempted to leave them hanging around.

3. Set a clean routine According to a recent survey commissioned by Libman, more than 90 per cent of those surveyed claim to feel more relaxed when they have a clean home. So, whether you’re looking forward to a big clean or would rather put it off, remember that it will have a great benefit to your mental health in the end.

For tough tasks like scrubbing bathroom grout and tiles, try out Libman’s Small Scrub Brush. It has strong polymer bristles for strength and efficiency as well as an ergonomic handle . Plus, it’s dishwasher safe, so you can reuse it often without worrying about spreading old mold or germs.
